Runway Inspired Challenge #35

    It's Friday which means I'm frantically creating a last minute card for the Runway Inspired Challenge Blog!! This weeks challenge (Click here for a link) is based on this photo from the runways of Miu Miu.
   I loved three things about this entire image immediately, the handbag, the dotted scarf, and the yellow dress of the previous model in the background. I decided to grab the closest matching Distress Inks in Squeezed Lemonade, Worn Lipstick and Tumbled Glass to go with the colors in the photo I also had to find some very tiny polka dot and stripe stamps. I used Technique Tuesday's Passion for Polka and Simon Says Stamp's Like Your Style to fill in the hearts. I also got my shipment from Two Peas in a Bucket yesterday which had my new Lawn Fawn Heart Dies!! I did some clever masking and die cutting and added some washi tape and a bit more Tumbled Glass ink with the help of Mama Elephants Basic Borders stamp and viola! Just a sentiment and heart from Lawn Fawn's A Birdie Told Me and a dash of Distress Marker in Worn Lipstick and I was done.
   I hope you like the card! It was a ton of fun to make and when I was finished I had a Julie Ebersole 'Happy Clapping Monkey' moment. Which was awesome. You can check out her amazing cards here @ PaperTruffles.


  1. I love your card so much! When I looked at the inspiration the thing I liked the most was the bag and I made a card based on this but wasn't happy enough with it. You have definitely nailed this one - all the elements but amazingly CAS!

    1. Thanks! I really like the card you made as well!
